    Pros

    Well at least it's a job.

    Cons

    There are too many to list.

    Advice to Management

    Replace management from top to bottom. Organization needs fresh new people and work approach.

    Pros

    Secure job. They won't fire anybody no matter how bad they are.

    Good vacation and holiday policy.

    Management is very good at allowing time off when needed. (see the first thing)

    Cons

    Processes, processes, Processes. Processes are more important than production and keeping the cost down. You spend more time keeping up with processes than engineering and manufacturing hardware.

    There are 4 stages of a company. One, creation. Two, growth. Three sustain. Four, decline. Honeywell is definitely in the 4th stage. The problem is the management structure is so large that by the time you get high enough up the chain where 2 groups have a common manager that it is such a small problem to that manager that nothing ever gets fixed. The groups are separated and work in a vacuum removed from actually being responsible for cost so much that they don’t care if a process cost more money. It’s whatever it takes to make their job easier.

    There is very little chance for advancement. Promotions are very few and far between if at all. Many people have worked for over 20 years without a promotion.

    Frustration from work environment and lack of growth have sucked the life out of the people. They are like zombies trying to put in their time until they can retire.

    Advice to Management

    Management is too arrogant to take advice.

    Pros

    Good place to hide. If you want to punch a clock and hide for 30 years, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The emperor has no clothes. Middle management will not stop the incessant foolish directives from on high and the finally peter out once mgmt gets it's eye on a new shiny toy, but only after a lot of wasted effort.

    Advice to Management

    None. They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    I loved my job as an energy home auditor. Easy on the body...lots of paperwork but nothing to stressful. Pay was great too

    Cons

    I was brought on as a contract to hire position. During the interview I was honest about my expectations in that I need something secure for my family and somewhere to grow. The easiest way to say what followed was a bunch of lies to put me at ease.
    I was fired the day before my benefits kicked in and before I any of my own paperwork had ever been reviewed for "lack of job performance". Very odd as the only work I had done to that point was shadow other auditors. I even had emails from my direct supervisor stating that I was doing an amazing job and that he was looking forward to having me in the field...2 days before I was fired. I was never given a verbal warning, never was told there were any issues and what they were. I was simply told I was doing an amazing job one day and fired for lack of performance the next (again the day before my benefits kicked in).
    I have every credential needed to hold the position meanwhile they have kept another auditor who had no credentials, had been relocated to different territories twice because ehe couldn't handle the workload, and didn't even know the difference between a floor joist and a ceiling rafter after 9 months in the position....but he did vacation with the boss...so he stayed and I got the boot.
    Overall the absolute worst job I've ever had because of the way management lied and twisted the truth.
    I was told I'd be working 1/2 hour from my home and wound up being stationed over 2 hours away for a month and a half. I was told I would be reimbursed for tolls and never was. I was told to be at the office at 8am and would wind up being told to sit in the break room till 1noon-1pm because my boss had a conference call.....I would be told to meet another auditor on site and sit in my car for almost 2 hours waiting for him to show up....no one had any idea what they were doing and it was by far the most incompetent company I've ever seen and trust me I've seen my fair share of them.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your etemp employees. If your only hiring a temp then be honest and don't lie to us and tell us well have a secure job and place to grow as long as we follow the rules and do our job. I did both and still got the boot over the guy who couldn't do either one.
    Talk to your employees and get different sides on any issues. An employee should not be let go without at least having the chance to talk to management .

    Pros

    The primary science and engineering responsibilities can be fun and challenging.

    Cons

    Resources and benefits continue to be cut. Stress is rising and morale falling. Little emphasis on professional development.

    Advice to Management

    You can't offer average pay, sub-standard benefits, push your people without adequate training resources, and expect to be considered world class. Your employees are smarter than you give them credit for. Quit blowing smoke.

    Pros

    Easy to hide, and decent ability to take time off.

    Cons

    Little to no differentiation among talent. Bar is so low, you could trip over it. Constantly reducing benefits and no increase in wages while top mgmt continued to increase pay.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to folks on the ground level that have to implement the policies and goals from on high. Treat employees with greater respect and offer true career paths.

    Pros

    Get to work with really great and smart coworkers. We get to work on and make some amazing products.

    Cons

    Aging workforce. Hard to find peers my age. Benefits get worse each year. More jobs are offshored each year. While our stock doubled our wages were held stagnant and promotions did not occur in my department. All the best people that I worked with have left the company for better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Need promotions, raises and career growth opportunities

    Pros

    Increased knowledge to move on in my career.

    Cons

    CEO, upper management, pay, highest insurance in my 20+ years of working another way CEO is pocketing money and taking from the hard working blue collar employees. Not sure how he sleeps at night

    Advice to Management

    Look outside to see that pay is lower than other companies. Reduce health care cost to keep employees.

    Pros

    in a good, high entry criteria industry

    Cons

    short sighted executives, who are not qualified, not even with knowledge of what they are responsible for. Got the jobs just because they are the buddies of CEO. Not respect subordinates.

    Pros

    Trying hard, but no real idea where they are going

    Cons

    no benefits, not care for morale or people
    Company makes tons of money, but gives 2% raises and 1/2 the merit. messages to employee's is really confusing.

    Advice to Management

    Look farther than tomorrow, what is the long term plan, and how can it be profitable, if everything we do has no margin. Stop changing the goal, and let us just do something for once, all the way to the end.
